Why the Scarf Moment? Despite Global Warming winter is still cold, and we all want to look good and stay warm. And these scarves are a perfect vehicle for recycling and reusing. They are made from vintage fabrics and some are even repurposed from vintage clothing. I back the vintage fabrics with new silk, wool, cotton and linen. My scarves are great for people who are wool sensitive since the wool scarves have a layer of silk or cotton on the reverse. The Scarf Moment is warmth with style.

Douglas Ram Samuj
These are some of the first scarves I made when I started this project a few months ago. The printed material was made by the late Douglas Ram Samuj who came to Los Angeles from Australia, in the sixties, to create hand printed fabrics. I had a very limited quantity of this 1960's linen fabric. I was able to make just a couple of short scarves. But I have a few other Douglas Ram Samuj fabrics, so check here later for more scarves from his wonderful hand printed fabrics. I backed this with linen/rayon blend fabric in a matching shade of blue.
